Favorite thing: The museum of Grenoble is one of the best in France outside Paris as it has a wide collection of both ancient and modern and contemporary art : Le Pérugin, Véronèse, Strozzi, Canaletto, Guardi, Rubens, Zurbaran... and also many French painters such as de Philippe de Champaigne, George de la Tour, Claude Lorrain, Simon Vouet.

The XIX° century is represented by Gauguin, Fantin Latour, Corot... The first half of the XX° century is the best part of the museum with "le célèbre intérieur aux aubergines" by Matisse, "l'intérieur blanc" from Bonnard, "Le Remorqueur" by Fernand Lager, "La Fenêtre" by Delaunay, "le songe d'une nuit d'été" by Chagall, "Le paysage à l'enfant" by Klee... There is also the best of surrealism: Magritte, Masson, Miro... et de l'art abstrait : Van Doesburg, Kupka, Arp, Bill, Gorin, Peri... and finally contemporary art, French (Morellet, Toroni, Lavier...) and foreign (Wesselman, Noland, Kellly,Lewitt...).
